Preparing Absinthe In Society

Properly preparing a glass of absinthe isn't as complicated as you may think.

Absinthe enthusiasts often refer to absinthe preparation as the "absinthe ritual", but it's not very different from making a cup of tea.



Absinthe Evaluation Tutorial

White Fairy

From the LdF website:

White Fairy is an absinthe blanche developed by Liqueurs de France and produced by the Emile Pernot distillery. This absinthe is released at 60% alcohol, which, we discovered, allows its delicate aromas to be less hindered by a high alcohol punch. As such, it also comes closer than our well-received Un Emile La Blanche 68 to the style and alcohol content found in Swiss 'La Bleue', which is typically between 50 - 60 %, but White Fairy uses no star anise, thus minimizing the 'licorice-like' taste.
